Comment: On 18 Oct you had asked about details about this swap. I had set it up specifically for you because you could not be allowed in the public swap. When things started going downhill for you, I pushed the "send-by" deadline back by 1 & HALF months, simply to enable you to cope with the pressures you faced, & still have at least one swap that you could legitimately send out in time. I kept on communicating with you. You simply decided not to send, & THAT is a decision, NOT an obligation. Whether you are too disheartened to swap on this site at all, or whether you want to "make a point" that you have more important things in your life, it does not concern me, & I should not be victimised for it. I am concerned with this swap, & I want you to know that I have publicly stood up & taken your side on this website. When you DELIBERATELY did not send , it is a personal insult to me.
Response: Yep you noticed well. I quitted swapbot due to moving plans
Will not send to anyone but dont know how to block the profile. Do you know how?
Comment: Been months and I haven't received anything. Disappointed because I was looking forward to this swap. I notice your profile about how you say everyone's rating you ones, you shouldn't have signed up if you can't afford to post them. many people who are sick still do their parts and make an effort to prepare what they need and send them out. You should have stopped signing up for swaps when you knew you couldn't.
Comment: Thank you for your nice letter and for sharing a little part of your world with me! I love the map and the postcard. :) Hopefully I can visit Belgium some day! And best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season!
Comment: I really got screwed over on this one. I was supposed to get 24 gifts to open like an Advent calendar and itâ€™s Dec. 4 and I still havenâ€™t gotten a thing. I did get excuses of her moving, having a party, being sick, etc. Because I was the host of the swap Iâ€™m glad it didnâ€™t happen to anyone else but Iâ€™m so disappointed. All the oneâ€™s and threeâ€™s started popping up a little after partners were assigned.
Response: People forget there is a life too
i have to pack up to move next april
by the way the comments Are the reason why i will leave swapbot after finishing all. Also high costs for me to send. Already 90 eur and its just the 6th. People who receive will see
very rude by the way
I really am moving, had a party and was sick!!!
Comment: dear Lynn, thank you for the nice pc and stamp. this is 3rd time pc from belgium arrived very fast, i think our MAS flight that bring mails to Malaysia is currently transit at Belgium that time. thank you for informing me first that the pc will be late. Best wishes, ain.
Comment: Swapper marked sent on swap when they had not sent. They did this to several swaps, promising to send out when they were able to. I am fairly sure they marked sent on so many swaps just so they could join more. You shouldn't be joining swaps if you haven't completed your late swaps. This swap was extremely late. I finally received this swap on 11/29, nearly a month after Halloween. I will stow away the items for next year. One of the items sent was a bag of chips that was completely destroyed in the mail because this was sent in a bubble envelope making an international journey. This should have been put in a box if something that fragile is going to be sent. Thank you for finally sending the swap.
Response: You should be happy after that comment i still sent you such a huge envelope with new bought stuff! !
as i said on profile i have over 200 palls and 30 packqges to send
plus i am in belgium
thats why i didnt use a box.
Comment: You clicked sent on 25/9/17.
Messaged me on 4/10/17 that you will send the following week.
On 24/10/17, you messaged again that you will send by this week.
Will re-rate after received.
15/11/17, Received the parcel. Thank you.
Response: Thanks for rerating my swap
i needed that five
Comment: Hello! Thank you for the lovey recipes and the recipe cards - you can't buy recipe cards here so I always have to make my own. I think I might try those Belgium waffles out on Christmas morning.
Thanks for the offer to help me with my Spanish (or should I say "gracias") I may take your partner up on that!
Response: You are welcome to write back in spanish. Thanks for that great rating. I really needed that
Comment: Ironically I did get the PC today. This is an odd situation as I did not know you were deliberately late until today, especially with no prior communication. You can't expect people to just read your profile. You need to individually reach out. I've made this mistake before. I cannot read the post date so I will give you the benefit of a doubt and rate you a 5.
Response: Thanks to rerate. I never meant to be late but because of being so busy i couldnt email each one from my swaps
now i am slowly catching up
Comment: WOW LOOKS LIKE YOU DID THIS TO A LOT MORE PEOPLE! WHAT A LIAR!
100% honest and fair rating (10/26/17 1255): Conclusion - it is not necessary to exclude this swapper based SOLELY on this (my) 3 rating, though given her track record looks like you should!
------------------Would love to rate a 5 and give a heart as the items she sent me are cute and to swap/profile. However, I will be rating a three as this was sent about 3 weeks after the due date. Previously rated a 1 as I was repeatedly lied to about this swap (See dated entries below). Would have happily waited until this swapper was ready to send had she provided a specific date she would ship instead of stringing me along, constantly pushing the date back. I do appreciate her reaching out to me. Though I initially felt something was amiss as she had marked the swap sent, yet admitted she hadn't. Seeing as I had to rate a 1 to "light a fire under her" and how she freaked out about it, I do feel that she does take swapping seriously. While I personally would not want to swap with her again, I feel that others should NOT shy away from her at this point. If she continues to lie to others though that may be cause for concern.
---------While slightly biased I believe the host of this swap did pretty well in trying to mediate this issue as well. ----------
[10/17/17 0402 Sorry Lynn, rating only out of fairness...I WAS contacted by this swapper however i feel this is a proper rate at this time. Swap was marked sent on 9/28. I was contacted on 10/4 informing me swap would be sent the following week then received message 10/16 that swap would be sent this week. will rerate when this swap arrives. UPDATE: 10/17/17 0411 Probably not a good idea to tell me what to do, I have now blocked this user as all of a sudden the swap "must have gotten lost in the mail" I do not down rate lightly but as I feel I may be being lied to I stand by my rating!! ---------------10/17/17 1311 So youve told me you were too sick to send 2-3 times, you told swap host you incorrectly addressed the package 2-3 times, now your commenting below blaming the post office, please let me know which of these statements are lies. The funny thing is I would have happily waited till december had you informed me that for XX reason you would not be able to send this swap to me untill XX date with a tracking number. that would have been absolutly no problem, instead you choose to lie about your send date and then continue to falsly promise that this swap would be sent next week, next week, sometime later this week. open and honest communication could have solved this but you choose to lie instead, that is why we now have a problem.]
Response: By the way, by this swapper, i have a name Lynn

Comment: I received your package today it got here in less than a week that I appreciate, however, it is almost a month late. Do you now understand why it is important to follow the rules? 28 swaps on your dashboard and most of them passed the deadline. You stated in Sept. you had a big party in Oct. the responsible thing to do would have been to cut back on your swaps. I tried to communicate with you and give you the benefit of the doubt and in return you were rude and demanding. You assured me you were a good swapper and do you remember what I said . . . "Don't just say you are a good swapper be one by following the rules." I hope this experience has taught you not just to slow down on your swaps but the enormous amount of people that can be hurt when the rules are disregarded and swaps are not met by their deadlines. The swaps are connected to real live human beings who believe and trust that you are going to follow through.
Response: Rude? ?? I have tried to send even before party.i have over 250 palls. So I try to do my best. Well i hope you still enjoyed your huge package.yes i noticed now it can be overwelming.
Comment: i'm sorry, but after pming me **several times** since october 5th stating that you would send "next week" (each time) because you were "sick", the 1st time you said it, i gave you the benefit of the doubt. will re-rate when received.
the tracking number you supplied in your response was for a different swap, not this one
Response: I know
still need to send
almost done but thuesday i must Let remove a wisdom tooth
Will finish and send after
Comment: Thanks for the pocket letter I received today.I especially liked the extras you included, Thanks so much.I am a lacemaker making many different forms, bobbin, needle, knitted and crochet .
Comment: Thank you so much for the excellent list letter! It shows how hard you work on all your letters, for which I am super appreciative! Thank you also for the nice extras--I will be hanging the ghost above my desk!
Comment: Thank you for this wonderful list! I'm excited for your birthday party! Happy Birthday! Also your boyfriend sounds so kind. And I have to say that I enjoy quietness too- so much noise from cars. Happy Swapping
Comment: Hello Lynn/Tom,
Thank you for the Summer Craft Swap. I love the varied post-it-notes. Those will help me in marking varied items in future swaps. The postcard is a picture of a beautiful building. I also love the stickers which I can use as well. Thank you for your generosity.
Comment: Thank you thank you thank you for the lovely letter! Sounds like you live in a very interesting/fun area. I'm excited to try the teas as well, especially the Bright Mood one. Let me know if you'd be interested in a letter back :)
Comment: Hoi! Wat een leuke kaart stuurde je voor mijn verjaardag :) het was een hele gezellig-drukke dag en we hadden mooi weer, dus konden de hele dag buiten zitten. Wat leuk dat je zo'n mooie kaart meestuurde van de Sint Maartens Kathedraal! Ik ga nog uitgebreid reageren op je brief, maar dat wordt denk ik pas volgende week. Liefs, Evelyn
Comment: Thank you so much for your lovely mail, Lynn. I was sooo happy about the washi tape! I found that we have a lot in common (esp. things that make you smile). One of my favourite shops is C&A, too - I didn't know there are stores in Belgium, too! Some celebrities and shops were new to me but finding out more about them was very interesting! Thank you!
Comment: Thank you so much for your generous Envelope. I was a bit irritated about your letter stating that you got my address from the Global Penfriends site, where I am not a member. ðŸ˜‰ But I found you. Thanks for everything
Response: Oops global penfriends is my mistake. Didnt notice it. So much to do at the same time. Sorry, hope you still like to write
Comment: Hello Lynn,
Thank you for the Animal Pocket Letter you sent me for this swap. I like how you used realistic pictures of animals on the front of the Pocket Letter. Thank you for the goodies that you sent along as part of the Pocket Letter.
Comment: I wasn't crazy about the plain tape but the tea was definitely appreciated :) you deserve a heart because of the generosity of paying 9,64 Euro for delivery confirmation omg that's so much money! I think it's totally fine to use a smaller envelope and send it as letter mail with pretty postage stamps, much cheaper too ^.^
